Amir lacks discipline. I don't know roach nor have I ever even met him, but he doesn't seem like the imposing do whatever the hell I tell you type of trainer. A wild and free spirit like Amir needs someone to drill his AZZ like your boy Cotto(e)'s militant trainer or a Steward.
An alpha male type of figure like Cus.
